I love a good swap and for March, I could not resist the Lucky Leprechaun Polish & Book swap. Nail polish and a good read- why that sounds right up my alley. I had the pleasure of meeting Hollie, and she blogs at Analyzing Sunshine. We got to know each other a little bit through e-mail and sent each other a list of books that we've been dying to read. I swear my top 10 keeps switching and is a never-ending list but I was so excited when I received a package in the mail containing the awesome things she sent on over.
We discussed what types of nail polishes we would like and being in the military, I have to wear very neutral colors that look professional in uniform. Hollie picked out such a cleverly named shade from Sally Hansen Salon Manicure line. "Commander in Chic" is a darker, mauve color with hints of deep purple. I sent her a soft lavender shade from Essie and you can see how it looks by visiting her post!
I was so pumped to see that this was the book that Hollie chose for me! Jujitsu Rabbi and the Godless Blonde is truly a fish out of water tale as Rebecca Dana (the author) dreamed of moving to New York City. She enjoys the glamorous lifestyle that she sought, until she is forced out of it and moves to Brooklyn with a 30-year old rabbi as a roommate. The summary itself sounded so hilarious so I put it in my top ten and I can't wait to read it.
I sent Hollie a copy of Safe Haven and I was actually able to see it in theaters yesterday as part of a weekly lady's night. We had so much fun and I'm a sucker for anything Nicholas Sparks. I thought the movie was great and the actors were gorgeous (in true Nicholas Sparks fashion). Tomorrow I'm tackling some Irish recipes and maybe going on some adventures with friends. Have a great weekend and many thanks to Hollie for a great swap!
Thanks for Reading!
